In the Wake of Poseidon album for sale Product Description

In the Wake of Poseidon album for sale by King Crimson was released Nov 01, 2011 on the Discipline label. "Pictures of a City" seems meant to pick up where "20th Century Schizoid Man" left off, with it's furious ensemble passages, knotty Fripp guitar leads and Greg Lake's authoritative vocal. "Cadence and Cascade" helps fill out the ballad quotient with a beautiful, wispy vocal from transitional singer Gordon Haskell In the Wake of Poseidon CD music. A valuable note of humor is interjected into the proceedings via the jokey, off-handedly jazzy "Cat Food." In the Wake of Poseidon CD music contains a single disc with 8 songs.   ...See Full Description

If you like their first album, you're going to like this one too, some of the songs here are actually similar to those on "In The Court...": "Pictures Of A City" will remind you of "21st. Century Schizoid Man" and the title song might sound to you like "Epitaph", but remember they were already playing some of this material on the tour for that previous album so the similarities shouldn't be too surprising; Greg Lake's voice sounds great here, Robert Fripp does an outstanding job with his guitars (but then, when doesn't he) both acoustic and electric, Ian McDonald is gone but in comes Mel Collins on flute and saxes and it's very difficult for me to tell who's better (because both are fantastic!), the Giles brothers set the rhythms as well as anyone can on bass and drums and Gordon Haskell sings on "Cadence And Cascade", one of the most beautiful songs King Crimson has ever recorded. This album hasn't been regarded as one of their best, but it has its great moments and it's definitely worth having.

Ludicrous to compare King Crimson's masterworks
though many always feel compelled to use In The Court of the Crimson King as the yardstick to perfection; I would rather enjoy each album on its own merits with the full realization that it was created in a different space and time. All that truly matters is our enjoyment of this rare genius. Thanks to Robert Fripp & Steven Wilson for their admirable work by staying faithful to the original creations while providing amazing sound refinement. Quite a tightrope act. THIS ALBUM I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

Why do people always feel compelled to compare?
This great work was entitled 'In The Wake Of Poseidon' for a reason, it is NOT the previous classic - it is a different album recorded at a different time. It seems that people have no tollerance for change or evolution. Since I was a kid I never compared my favorite artists albums most popular albums to their lesser appreciated works. Always felt that each album either stood up or did not on its own. How many times have you gone to concerts and noticed folks screaming out for the artists greatest/radio friendly/often trival hit songs? I am finally getting back into King Crimson and frankly enjoying the experience each step of the way. Looking forward to picking up a vinyl copy of this gem scheduled for release October 10 of this year.

Highly underated follow up to In The Court...
Better production values, superb playing, and excellent vocals from the out going Greg Lake with a guest vocal by the remarkable Gordon Haskell. Less formal and more experimental than In The Court, In The Wake is a worthy sophmore album.

Similar to the previous album but still a masterpiece!
If you love King Crimson (specially their first album “In The Court Of The Crimson King”), you will also adore this great musical masterpiece. Both albums have similar style and feeling: “Pictures Of A City” is a song close to “21st Century Schizoid Man”. Both of them have plenty of aggressiveness. “In The Wake Of Poseidon” has a dramatic mood that remains “Epitaph”, etc. Anyhow, in my opinion, “In The Wake Of Poseidon” isn’t as good as their first album but there is some innovation in it: the band creates terrifying atmospheres with the track “The Devil’s Triangle” (perhaps, a type of psychedelic instrumental song). Mell Collins replaced Ian McDonald for wind instruments. Anyway, both of them are fabulous musicians. One of the songs is beautifully sung by Gordon Haskell (although, I still prefer Greg Lake). Lake doesn’t play bass guitar on this album. He was replaced by Peter Giles (who came from the previous band Giles, Giles and Fripp). “Cat Food” is an original song with a distinctive and chaotic piano with a particular sense of humor. At the beginning and at the end of the album there is a short song with the same melody but with different lyrics. Robert Fripp uses the melody of these songs to create an instrumental acoustic guitar piece that sounds gorgeous. “Poet” Peter Sinfield, who also appears on the previous album, writes all lyrics. On the other hand, I must say there are some magical moments that don’t appear “In The Court Of The Crimson King”.
